State Department Announces "Doors to Diplomacy" 2005 Web Site Competition for Middle School and High School Students

The U.S. Department of State, along with the Global SchoolNet Foundation, is pleased to announce the 2005 "Doors to Diplomacy" Award competition. This educational award will recognize the student-created Global SchoolNet Web project that best teaches others about the importance of international affairs and diplomacy.

Students work in small teams with teacher-coaches. Each student member of the team who wins the "Doors to Diplomacy" receives a $2,000 scholarship, and the winning coaches’ schools each receive a $500 cash award. The State Department also sponsors a trip to Washington, D.C., where the winners receive a private tour of the State Department facilities, meet with key officials, and participate in a special award presentation ceremony.

Winners will be announced in spring 2005.
